If you follow me on FB you know I’ve been talking about getting my hair cut. I’ve added several short cute styles and asked for everyone’s opinions, and then I took the plunge, decide to go for it, only to find out my stylist was booked 6 weeks out. Well I sat tight, booked my appointment, and waited patiently.
Here is the inspiration photo I took with me (I need to find me those mirrored sunglasses too). I think it’s such a darling cut, to bad I’m not blond or 20 something again. I grew my color off 2 years ago and wasn’t going back to coloring. I like the freedom and money savings of being all natural. Below in the first photos is how I normally wear my hair when it’s long. A messy bun, I don’t even comb it for several days and I only have to wash it about every 4th day. Talk about some embarrassing photos of me, but you may as well see how horrible I was looking.
Well hello people, why didn’t someone tell me I looked like POOP. Wow was that hair dating me, and so needed to go. I’m a stylist and didn’t even see how bad I was looking. What a train wreck, right? Next time tell me I can take it…..I’m not 20 anymore so the messy bun needed to go (even though it was simple) see there I go trying to justify that awful look.
I have super thick hair so she actually cut it 3 times (the pile you see is from the first cut) before enough was removed. I get it cut with a hot razor…..love it…..wouldn’t go back to a scissor cut again. She’s able to give me a great laying cut, and thin it out. I think she thins as much out as she leaves on my head. I also had a nice massage while I was there. I wasn’t expecting that so it was a welcomed treat…..my stylist is the best!
I did have my gal put a gloss on my hair while I was there just to make it shine, but I stayed away from the color. I loved my hair when it was red, and I also like the cut. I may go back to the cut but no color, it’s just too much upkeep. Did you happen to notice with my hair forward and not pulled away from my face almost no gray shows. I guess the majority of it was around my hairline. So what do you think?
